We got a quick update from the folks at Gentle Giant to clarify some information regarding their Animated Pirates of the Caribbean Maquette line. Although they announced the cancellation of distributor orders for Will Turner and Captain Barbossa Maquettes at the beginning of this week, they are still producing the 2 items. These items will be available directly through Gentle Giant and limited to 1,000 pcs world wide. They will be available to purchase through their website www.gentlegiantltd.com in spring of 2008, and are currently still available to pre-order. They have not cancelled preorders previously placed through the website.
